story not too long ago. >> i want to talk about some comments that newt gingrich made that caused a little bit of a ruckus. there was a little bit of a back and forth between gingrich and romney. and of course, gingrich, never one to hold his tongue, had some choice words for romney, didn't he? >> reporter: he sure did. he was on "the situation room" yesterday. and of course gingrich and romney battled it out earlier this year, along with others, for the nomination. well, gingrich gave some advice on what's maybe not working for romney. take a listen. >> the romney campaign has yet to find a thematic way of explaining itself and laying out in a clear, crisp way the difference between romney and obama. it'slearly something you can go out and you can communicate and you can do dramatically better than romney's currently doing. >> just be who you are. others say, get tougher, attack. and my own view is this. i've got to be who i am and describe why i think i'm the person that's going to become the next president of the united states, and how my policies will make life better for amer
them pretty effectively to dispatch rick perry, dispatch newt gingrich, who everybody was talking about as the great debater and so on. so i actually think romney has a good chance of sort of getting over the sort of is he presidential hump. i agree with charles, though, he has to get a bit further and deliver a little more on substance than he did during the republican convention. and the republican convention was all about mitt romney, you know, likeable human being. i think talking about likability now sort of misses the point. for romney, it's all about saying obama has failed, here's some substance i can offer as an alternative, you don't necessarily have to love me to want to put me in charge of a country that's frankly in a bit of a mess still. >> the strange thing about mitt romney, i have interviewed him three times now and he is quite likeable when you meet him privately. there's definitely two sides. i was struck by what one of his sons told me at the convention, when i interviewed all the boys. he said he has struggled to get out of ceo mode in public. for so long he ran a b
